Skills Focus is a new DEL funded programme to provide tailored skills provision to SMEs (<250 employees) with delivery of qualifications at level 2 and above.
It is part of the Department’s commitments under the Northern Ireland Economic Strategy, and its aim to increase the skills levels and employability of the existing workforce.
Skills Focus is a new strand to the existing Employer Support provided by South West College and will work alongside and complement the Employer Support Programme – InnovateUs.
Skills Focus Programme replaces the existing customised training element of the Skills Solutions service with 75% of the training costs paid by DEL and 25% paid by employer.
Skills Focus aims to support, promote, and facilitate collaborative working between business and FE colleges, in order to provide tailored skills provision to small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to increase the skills levels of their workforce to level 2 and above qualifications.
